Do you know the most common injuries in Lacrosse?

The risk of injuries in lacrosse in total is quite moderate, and the majority are smaller injuries like sprains, strains, superficial wounds and contusions. 

At the same time more severe injuries can occur during both contact or non-contact situations in training and matches. 

The lower part of the body is particularly exposed for injuries due to the fast pace of the game, quick changes of direction and jumps. And like similar sports such as handball or floorball, the risk of ACL injuries in lacrosse is significant. Hits to the head causing a concussion occur mostly from contact and collisions between the players during a match. 

By knowing the game, following the rules and using the obligated protection gear, you can prevent and decrease the severity of injuries. Being in good physical shape is also necessary to prevent injuries and will at the same time have a positive effect on your development as a player.
